Windows 7: Error 1079

05 Nov 2009   #11

7600.20510 x86

Your Desktop Window Manager session service is hijacked. My last post is your best chance of getting it fixed.

No messaging. This information posted here is for the benefit of the community as a whole. Thus, everything is helpful to have here.

You also have Bonjour service. Google for proper procedure to uninstall that from the system.

If I was you, I'd Google on what the 2 LogMeIn services are and remove them if not needed or malicious.

Unless you specifically use it, uninstall or disable the World Wide Web Publishing service.

Disable NMIndexing service.

Also research Net.TCP Port Sharing service as it may be malicious too.

When done, make sure Desktop Window Manager service is set to local system account on logon tab.

Good luck.

You're welcome. If you aren't able to fix it as I suggested, simplest thing for someone in your position to do is a repair install.
